Macmillan's House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War

Join us

Thank you for joining us at our 33rd Annual House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War event. We are so proud of everyone that took part.

The finale of the evening was the nail-biting match between the House of Lords and the House of Commons which saw the MP Ladies and the Lords bagging the coveted trophy.
